Hello,
My name is Larry, My great grandfather immigrated to US early 1900's from Poland, Kierzek. Was looking for Relatives. His name was Jan Sakowski, his father was Stanislow, and Jan's son was Stanley (my Grandfather (Jadku?). If you have any information woudl be great to know. i have a friend Grzegorz in Warsaw, and another Piotr Cebula from Krakow, as well as Piotr Jakubowski from well can not remember the town, but is near Poznan. Was is Polan 3 years ago, was awestruck and taken back at some of the poor areas that have been hard hit since end of communism in 89. Was hard to see. Not something I would see too much in America. Especially how hard they worked and how little is made. Anyway anyone interested just write, my email is lcasula@juno.com.

First of all Hello Larry, welcome to the site.

So you went to Poland and there are some areas which need attention?

Just Curious. I dont think that these areas which are hard hit, would be
much different then any other places which need attention around the globe.

I think it has alot to do with the Govts not putting forth efforts to take action
as I have always believed this to be the reason for many places.

are you in the USA Larry?

Patrycja,
I will have to find the name of the town I was in. Basically my friends father has been out of work for many years, his mother works in a state run store and makes 1200 Z. a month, for 6 days a week and 8 hours a day. Thier area ia depressed and many older men come in to the store and just drink Pivo.

When the Russinas left this farm belt they took everything with them and left the land in poor shape. Also with no equipment was hard for anyone to make a living, so many of them get gov't assistance. So, yes I do think that the Gov't could help out more to get the economy going better instead of taking so much out in tax. My friend I made him a business partner in my company so he could make money to send home. He is putting his sister through school and when the other one is ready to go to college he will do the same there.

It just broke my heart that they could not have modern convienences, not even a refrigerator. The roads are full of potholes and was very depressing to see. Is located on western side of Poland near the middle, about 4 hour drive from Berlin and 1.5 hr from Poznan.

Larry
